Just a quick question? Can I use the below cable for coding or am I better to steer clear of the Chinese ones?

It's probably quite alright. There is not much to an ENET Cable.

Hi Shawn,

I've just recently picked up my 2013 F31 - and ordered a cable which arrived at the weekend. Want to see if I can get enhanced bluetooth working (along with a few other tweaks).

Could you send me a link to the latest software, and your tutorial.

Looking forward to having a play.

Thanks.

You can try 54.1, but if your car has 55.0 you are screwed as there is no working version of 55.0 PSdZData due to BMW AG's Trimming of PSdZData CAFD files.

Hi shawnsheridan.

How does this look like? I heard the parameters in Esys are not readable anymore because they are somehow encrypted. Is this correct? Do you have a screenshot of it?
Is there already a solution in sight?

That is half correct. CAFD files have always been Encrypted, but Encryption is not the problem. What is the problem is that BMW made changes to PSdZData beginning with 54.2 and expanded upon them in 54.3, and expanded upon further in 55.0 where they removed descriptive text from CAFD (and FAFP) files, making FDL Coding of many ECU's impossible using regular PSdZData files.

Here is a picture of a Trimmed CAFD:

OMG!

Thanks for the screenshot.

Is it then still possible to code FA codes like e.g. 6NS for enhanced BT, 430 for electrochrome mirrors or HO Word HiFi for the Alpine retrofit sound system?

Yes, VO Coding is not a problem. Only FDL Coding it a problem.

There is no way to validate if a downloaded version is complete per se'. If it is > 25 Gb though, it is Full version and not Lite version.

You really should wait until your car arrives before lining out your PSdZData. 55.1 is due soon, so it is a good chance what you are doing now is a waste of time and bandwidth.

Hello Shawn,

can you please send me the instructions to enable me start coding. I have already installed E-Sys but I think I still need the PSZDATA Files!?

Thank you!
